Chivas go the offensive to edge Atletico

Atletico Paranaense 3 – Chivas 4 (Agg. 5-6) (Copa Sudamericana, September 30, 2008) After Gonzalo Pineda headed Chivas into the lead just before halftime, five minutes into the second half Xavier Baez doubled Chivas’ advantage to put the visitors in control. Rafael Moura pulled a goal back for Atletico in the 57th minute, only for Riveron (a fabulous chip at the near post) and Santana (unstoppable free-kick) to put Chivas 4-1 ahead. The hosts rallied, Kelly headed in a corner-kick in the 68th minute and in the 79th minute Rafael Moura brought down a brilliant ball before blasting it into the back of the net, but Chivas held out to advance to the quarter-final.
